This faded black pullover bomber jacket is one of the underused, yet favorite items in my wardrobe. What I love about it (besides the fact that it’s a size Small woohoo!) is the many ways it can transform. Transformable pieces of clothing are common in womenswear, but not often seen in menswear. I’m happy to see this kind of creativity translated on to menswear.
This is how it looks laid out flat:
You can button any or all of the tiny buttons by the neckline to create some sort of a tucked/pleated effect when worn.
You can wear the neck draped down like a cowl:
Or tie the strings to bunch up the fabric and the neckline smaller,
